"Okay Union City Neighborhood"

The Dry Creek neighborhood in Union City is just to the south of the Fairway Park neighborhood in Hayward. The neighborhood is just to the south of the Chapel of the Chimes cemetery.

Although like in much of Hayward, the homes in this Union City neighborhood seem to date back to the 1950’s, the homes here seem nicer and better kept than in many other neighborhoods dating from the same time period. The lanes feel wider and the trees leafier than in those other neighborhoods.

Home here run around $300K.

This is a pretty safe neighborhood. It gets only about one burglary per month and is free of most other kinds of serious crime.

Schools are a little bit of a mixed bag here, with the high school and elementary being solid, but he middle school, Cesar Chavez, being well below average.
  • Modestly Nice Homes
  • Nice Leafy Streets
  • Good Spot for Commuters
  • Too Close to the Cemetery
  • Questionable Middle School
